Raves And Waves

The cat coddled cod. The king kicked his kind.
The goon goaded god. The freak found her find.

The lance leveled laws. The man missed his miss.
The fool followed flaws. The kook kissed her kiss.

The lord looted lands. The clod cloned his clone.
The host handled hands. The lass loaned her loan.

The sage signaled signs. The dunce dipped his dip.
The lout littered lines. The wimp whipped her whip.

The cop courted courts. The monk mocked his mass.
The sot sorted sorts. The punk passed her pass.

The roach rated raves. The tom tripped his trip.
The wind wafted waves. The ship slipped her slip.
